Court forbid Tony Ferguson to approach his wife and son
Today it became clear what kind of Tony Ferguson’s “personal problems” told about UFC President Dana White, answering the question why “El Cucuy” will not fight for the interim lightweight title at UFC 236.
According to numerous sources, Tony Ferguson’s wife, Christina Ferguson, has reached a restraining order against her husband, which would limit his right to contact her and their son. According to sources, the restraining order was issued after a series of incidents requiring the police to visit Ferguson’s house.
For the first time, Christina Ferguson called home policemen in January last year. This February there were three more calls, the reason for which was the strange behavior of a fighter. Tony Ferguson smashed furniture at home, spoke about a computer chip that allegedly implanted in his leg, threw holy water into his wife and claimed that “there is someone in the walls of the house.”
The climax of this situation was the last case when a fighter took his son from his parents’ home, where he was with his mother, after which he took him to his home and changed all the locks.
According to his wife, she was not afraid for her safety or the safety of her son, as he did not show much aggression towards them, but his outbursts of anxiety became more obvious, and the fighter refused to see a doctor. On April 5, Tony Ferguson expects a court hearing on the case of domestic violence.
Recall that the last fight of Tony Ferguson took place last October at the UFC 229 tournament. That night he scored a technical knockout victory over Anthony Pettis.
